About the Keynote
As far as how I got here, my parents will tell you that I captured the
attention of my first audience at a very early age and never turned back.
They will also tell you that I cost them way too much money, but that is
beside the point. I started facilitating leadership presentations and
speeches in 2002 for my peers at the University of North Carolina
Wilmington (UNCW), Clemson University, and regional conferences.
In 2009 after I presented a workshop, someone came up to me and asked
me how much I charged for my speaking services. I told them they could buy me lunch and then my paid speaking career was off to the races! Becoming a Professional Speaker has allowed me to do the two things I love most: making people think and making people laugh.
I help audiences pause and think about the way they lead, the way they connect, and the way they can impact their world. I create moments that empower teams and individuals to realize they are the only thing standing in the way between the results they want and the results they're currently seeing. I am an award-winning, recognized professional speaker with a background in stand-up and improv comedy. I deliver powerful and hysterical keynotes and workshops that will transform lives.
